Mid January 2016

We had a great time, hotel was good,  but one chair only opens weekends and another chair was closed due to lack of snow but opened on the 25th Jan.

We are looking at next year so will get hold of you when we decide where we are going.

Thanks again.



Mid January 2016

We loved Rockwood Hotel & Spa. 

The service was fantastic, and we really appreciated the transfers from the train station and to the airport. 

We loved the layout of the resort - it was quick and easy to get around and the views were spectacular. The accommodation was great as well as the food at the hotel and the daily onsen was absolutely necessary. 

We'll be back again and hope to explore even more of the mountain then (some areas were not opened up).

  Trip Advisor




Aomori Spring sits on the Northern slopes of Mt Iwake. A gondola takes you up
through pristine beech forest, to a height of 921 metres where you can
appreciate the stunning views of the Tsugaru Plain and the Sea of Japan.

With world-class dry powder snow conditions, wide groomed trails which extend
over 3.5km in length and drop 545 vertical metres, and a number of steep
off-piste pitches, there is plenty of terrain to keep your whole family satisfied.
After dark you can enjoy night skiing/riding under the moonlight on one of our
floodlit trails.

For freestyle skiers and riders, facilities include an Olympic-sized 22 foot
halfpipe, the largest in Japan, and a terrain park which is open both day and
night. Backcountry skiers will fall in love with the almost endless supply of
pristine powder snow that Aomori has to offer. 

Best of all, you can enjoy all of this safe in the knowledge that excellent
snow conditions are guaranteed throughout the length of the winter season.

Stay on the mountain at the Rockwood Hotel and Spa. Having undergone a
partial renovation in 2015, guests can experience our renovated corner
double rooms or enjoy our classic hospitality in our well-appointed classic
rooms. Those seeking the ultimate luxury can opt for our 1-bedroom suite,
a 77 square meter room with its own private onsen and living room.
